In electrical applications, Nylon® seals are widely used. Outdoors, they protect from dust and rain (street lights, urban furniture, etc.). These seals guarantee IP65 protection.
Sheaths are often used to cut costs when protecting electrical cables and providing seals to insulate the elements. Using seals on battery chargers allows insulating their covers. They are also used in electronics, in printed circuit board assembly systems. They help dissipate heat on power components.
Nyltite® seals are used when assembling panels on commercial aircraft for their combined vibration resistance, sealing and locking actions.
The advantages of Nyltite® seals are well known in rail or maritime applications. Vibration resistance and the general sealing achieved by the under-head seals offers a cost effective solution for all kinds of applications subject to the elements and to vibration due to transportation.
On all outdoor screw head applications, Nyltite® seals ensure the waterproofness of the under-head assembly while avoiding any marks on the base and any galvanic corrosion that could be caused by the different materials assembled.
